Van Wolfswinkel scores on debut for Norwich

NORWICH, England (AP) — Record club signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel scored on his Premier League debut for Norwich in a 2-2 draw against Everton on Saturday.

Everton dominated much of the game but the Toffees found themselves trailing at Carrow Road through an unlikely goal from defender Steven Whittaker early in the second half.

Two goals in four minutes just after the hour — the first a long-range strike from Everton’s Ross Barkley before Seamus Coleman converted a tap-in — looked like putting Roberto Martinez on course for a win in his first league game in charge of Everton.

But Van Wolfswinkel produced a superb header with a little under 20 minutes remaining to earn his new side a point.
